94-year-old Billionaire Marries for Fifth Time. To Be Old, Rich and in Love
If you had almost five billion dollars, what would you do? For Karl Wlaschek, the answer is marry a lot.
Forbes is reporting via Vienna News that Austrian retail tycoon Wlaschek will wed for the fifth time at the ripe old age of 94. His bride-to-be, girlfriend Friederike 'Ricki' Schenk, won't reveal her age, but is likely a good three decades behind her groom. That means Wlaschek, a self-made mogul, has defied stereotypes by proposing to a woman who's closer to his age than the average Hef-to-twin-sisters ratio.
